SEAFORD, Del.- ILC Dover, known for making spacesuits and equipment for NASA and personal protection gear for the military, held a grand opening Tuesday for Grayling Industries, its new plant in Seaford.

The 90,000-square-foot facility will be home to several production lines, including Guardian™ protective packaging for food, chemical, and pharmaceutical dry powder and liquid applications; and the leading brands for the asbestos abatement and remediation industry worldwide.

These production lines are in the process of moving from Juarez, Mexico, to Seaford. ILC Dover received a Strategic Fund Performance Grant of $364,500 for the creation of 120 new full-time positions in the state. The company also received a Strategic Fund Capital Expenditures Grant, up to $187,860.

ILC Dover Program Manager Tony Asti said the company spent close to $1.2 million to renovate and transform the old DuPont Nylon's Manufacturing building in Seaford into the new Grayling Industries plant.

"We are excited about the move: it defies the longtime drain of U.S. manufacturing jobs to countries with cheaper labor rates. This move will create an economic boost in Delaware," said Asti.

In a statement, ILC boss William Wallach called Delaware "very cooperative." Total ILC employment in the state, including the planned new Grayling Industries, will total 560.

Grayling Industries is located at 6095 Whitehurst Drive in Seaford.
